Rice University Energy and Environment Initiative Selects Tendenci® Open Source CMS Platform

Upgraded website to advance relationships for research, collaboration and sponsorships

Rice University IIE is now using TendenciHOUSTON, July 1, 2014 – Tendenci (www.tendenci.com), the software development company spearheading the Tendenci® Open Source Content Management System (CMS) project for associations and other nonprofits (NPOs), is proud to release a dynamic new website for Rice University’s Energy and Environment Initiative. The website, http://eei.rice.edu, is powered by Tendenci Open Source CMS, which ensures that the initiative’s online presence keeps pace with the rapid increase in its activity and visibility.

Tendenci Open Source CMS was released as an open source solution to give cause-related organizations greater freedom and control over their online presence.

The Energy and Environment Initiative supports research that draws experts from every corner of Rice University. The upgraded website prominently features the initiative’s five key markets – Oil and Gas, Power, Petrochemicals, Energy Information and Environment – and related research efforts that are underway.

“The idea is to make it easy for interested parties, such as businesses, other universities, governments and foundations to learn about our work and begin to explore opportunities for collaboration, partnerships and sponsorships,” said Kelly Cline, the Energy and Environment Initiative program manager. “Our new website will be an essential tool to establish and strengthen a community of organizations determined to overcome barriers to the sustainable development and use of current and alternative forms of energy.”

Among the capabilities that make the Tendenci platform so powerful is its ability to sort and analyze the activity of website users. This allows organizations using Tendenci to better target and tailor information based on observed user behaviors.

The Energy and Environment Initiative encourages frequent return visits to the website by constantly updating content using Tendenci’s CMS. It is easy to create new pages, update and organize website content, and post news and articles. To leverage the full breadth of Rice University’s communications infrastructure, Tendenci uses tags to automatically pull relevant headlines from the university’s RSS feed, which keeps the home page fresh.

To demonstrate expertise and share knowledge, the initiative uses Tendenci’s integrated rich media management to easily upload, view and search videos. Tendenci’s integrated business directory capability to feature partner organizations. And with Tendenci’s online event management, the initiative can easily post and promote upcoming speaking engagements and conferences.

Tendenci has more than 1 million users and currently powers hundreds of websites for organizations around the world, including Metropolitan New York Library Council (www.metro.org), Houston Technology Center (www.houstontech.org) and DePelchin™ Children's Center (www.depelchin.org).

Rice University’s Baker Institute Selects Tendenci® Open Source CMS

 

Baker-Institute.pngHOUSTON, October 15, 2013 – Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy, one of the premier nonpartisan public policy think tanks in the country, has kicked its visibility efforts into high gear by launching a dynamic new website, http://bakerinstitute.org/, powered by Tendenci (www.tendenci.com), the open source Content Management System (CMS) for cause-related organizations. The goal of the upgrade was to redefine how the Web can be used to connect the work of think tank researchers to the array of outcomes of their work – and tie it all back to real time events percolating around the globe.

The website, featuring more than 1,000 pieces of research, 800 videos and hundreds of events, was designed and developed by Schipul – the Web Marketing Company (www.schipul.com).

“We are looking to make a bold statement, build awareness and ensure our online presence conveys to the world how strong the work is that we do,” said Ryan Kirksey, director of operations and finance with Rice University’s Baker Institute. “As an open source solution, this platform gives us freedom to develop and maintain the site however we choose.”

The Baker Institute leverages many of Tendenci CMS’ unique capabilities. The organization can manage and organize website content without having to go through a third party, and Tendenci has built-in automatic search engine optimization features. The site also includes donation and fundraising management that makes it easy for users to contribute financially, online event management that enables the Baker Institute to quickly and easily add events to the online calendar, allow registration, take payment and access registrant information.

The new website also includes rich media management to make it easy to upload, view and search photos and videos, and responsive design to ensure users have a consistent and positive experience regardless of the device they use to access the site.

“Tendenci offered us a platform to feature our multimedia in a way that is both visually pleasing and functional,” said Kirksey. “We do more than 100 events per year, each of which is streamed online and then archived for on-demand playback, along with photos. The new website makes all this accessible to those who can’t come here to Houston to see what we do.”

Tendenci was released as an open source CMS to give cause-related organizations, including NPOs and associations, greater freedom and control over their online presence. Tendenci has more than 1 million users and powers hundreds of websites for nonprofit organizations and associations around the world, including Metropolitan New York Library Council (www.metro.org), Houston Technology Center (www.houstontech.org) and DePelchin Children's Center (www.depelchin.org).
